Funeral For Winthrop Shooting Victim Dave Green Set For Friday

WINTHROP (CBS) -- A funeral for retired Massachusetts State Trooper Dave Green, who was killed Saturday in a shooting in Winthrop that investigators say was racially motivated, is now set for Friday.

The Maurice W. Kirby Funeral Home in Winthrop announced Monday that visiting hours for Green's funeral will be from 10 a.m.- 1 p.m., followed by a service at the Winthrop Cemetery at 1:30 p.m.

Police say 28-year-old Nathan Allen shot and killed Green and Air Force Staff Sgt. Ramona Cooper, both who were Black, after crashing a stolen truck.

Green was 68 years old.

"He was just a good, kind-hearted person," said Green's brother, Aria Ray Green. "He heard there was an accident, he went to investigate, see if he could help, which is something he would readily do. He was just a very, very good person, and he spent his life serving the community," he said.

A candlelight vigil for Green and Cooper will be held Thursday at 7 p.m. in front of Town Hall "to remember and honor the victims of this hateful crime."
